Baby Shower…

Yesterday was the baby shower for Lars.  He is adorable!  And, his parents Chris and Mike are just great people.  Not to mention that he has been born into a large and loving extended family.


I mentioned several times that I was working on a baby gift…and I finally finished it.  Actually, I started out with two different gifts – but, the more I knit on the one project – the less I felt it was the right one…So, this is what I made for Lars:


It is a little quilt – hand quilted around each of the fish…this is the second quilt I have done like this…and have enjoyed making them.


This photo shows the backing and maybe a bit of detail on the fish…


There was yummy food…


beautiful flowers…


Food, flowers and guests…


Mommy Chris opening up presents…


And, a special lullaby played on a harp and sung by one of Chris’ friends.

It was a lovely afternoon spent with friends and getting to share in the birth of such a special little boy!

    What a wonderful shower!!! The harp player is such a sweet and lovely idea. I love the quilt you made and the hand stitching around the fish is such a great idea!

    I love that quilt you made. The harp player was a nice touch……hope she didn’t play the lullaby after you all finished eating that yummy food…or else all you adults might have fallen asleep and not the baby! LOL

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and wishing me a happy birthday, Sara. It’s nice to meet a fellow knitter. I love the fish quilt you handstitched. The shower looks lovely and the harp must have been such a special treat.

    How lovely!
    I have started on several projects for a shower and think I have stumbled upon the right one. Funny how that works!

    My sister Kathy made a quilt for my son Dylan when he was born and it was similiar to the one you made. He’s 27 now!
